Local CFI meets to fight mold

April 15, 2002
The Orange/Inland and Los Angeles chapters of the Carpet and Fabricare Institute (CFI) presented Mold Mitigation and Remediation on Feb. 27 in Whittier, Calif. Industrial hygienist Patrick Moffett and remediation contractor Brian Spiegel were keynote speakers. Carl Williams, president of the Academy of Textiles & Flooring, hosted the event.

Moffett and Spiegel covered a range of topics, including areas of concern for carpet cleaners, health effects, liability, proper remediation and containment, and how insurance companies limit mold-related losses.

The event also included a panel discussion about the latest research on mold and its effects on the insurance industry. The next meeting will be on April 27. For information, contact CFI at (800) 227-7389.
